Conditions In Wyoming Too Damp for Large Fires, But That Could Change

www.geog.ucsb.edu

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming’s state forester says conditions remain too damp to fuel the kind of large forest fires that are burning in the southern Rocky Mountains.

State Forester Bill Crapser says Thursday that Wyoming has seen some smaller fires recently. But he says they haven’t been growing very large because fuels remain damp. Crapser says he believes Wyoming is probably still a couple of weeks away from significant fire activity, depending on the weather. He says conditions will change quickly if Wyoming experiences a week and a half of hot, dry weather.

He says the state sent a strike team of firefighters to New Mexico recently and several Wyoming firefighters are also serving on incident management teams assigned to large fires burning in Colorado.
